A village in Cook and DuPage counties in Illinois, Hinsdale is listed as in the top 1% of the wealthiest towns in the state. Known for its beautiful residences, Hinsdale is a pleasant place to live in. However, like most places in the Chicago area, it is prone to extreme weather conditions, making homes susceptible to moisture issues.
Moisture issues in crawl spaces are pretty common, especially if your home isn’t protected from the elements. If a crawl space suffers from moisture issues, your home will be susceptible to mold, fungi and mildew. Moisture can also cause wooden posts to rot and it can lead to premature degradation of the foundation.
In short, crawl space moisture is not good.
Solutions to Crawl Space Moisture Issues
To protect your crawl space, and your home, from issues stemming from moisture, you might need to get your crawl space encapsulated. Crawl space encapsulation is a general term that basically means waterproofing your crawl space.
It usually refers to the use of a vapor barrier to help control the humidity levels of crawl spaces, and to have one installed, you should call a Perma-Seal professional.
